Hi,

Welcome to all reading this thread.

New to this forum AND new to Peugeots....and already facing a big problem, so any help would be reatly appreciated.

Car: 307 1.6 HDi SW 2005, 90 BHP, No FAP.

Problem: Car cut out whilst driving and will not restart.
The AA tried and could get the car started, although it did momenterily fire up on EasyStart spray.

The fault stored had a INJECTOR 1 OPEN CIRCUIT

Recovered the car to a garage (supposedly a pug specialist) who said that there was a fault with the pump as the cranking pressure was only 15 and not the expected 300.
He has also checked the crank/cam sync and the timing belt alignment which is ok.
He has also done a diesel leak off test and that is also ok
However the mechanic is not confident enough to say 100% that it is the fuel pump.

A second mechanic has also had a look and thinks its the High Pressure pump, as there isn't a lift pump in the tank, but also isnt 100% sure and wants to send me to a third mechanic.

If it is the pump, how much should I be expecting a bill for as many people are scaring me!!

And are the HP pumps on my 2005 model coded to the ECU?? and require specialist coding or can I just get the pump changed at my local garage?

OR

are the mechanics barking up the wrong tree and the problem is elsewhere??

Any help will be highly appreciated.

Many thanks in advance

not a great deal of information because that's when they made the 1.6 hdi and my auto data ran out in 2004:mad: however one of the major changes is Turbo Diesel with computer control injection and no FAP ( that was the best thing they ever did ) but down to the problem of cutting out and as its not like the 2004 because its Turbo Diesel with computer control injection this is where I would start my investigations,

the other mechanics seem to be guessing because the evidently don't realise the engine is totally new on the block purely because of computer control injection.

the problem speaks for its self really ( stuck/sticking injector ) as its computer controlled injection then this is the start of you investigation try putting some fuel system injector cleaner this could solve the problem,

im not saying it will but worth a try.

Hi to all,

Car has been dropped off at 'Nottingham Diesel Services' for a full diagnostics.
Hopefully they will be able to shed further light on the matter.

P.S where can I get a copy of a later autodata?
mine is also the 2004 version

good luck mate but my guess is they need to replace injector 1 or a software update but you never know with the new computerised injection systems,

im in the process of downloading the later Adata but it will take approx 8 days because its a very big file and thanks in advance to those who passed their valuable information to me.

Hi,
Just to give you an update.
The mechanic has checked all the injectors and they seem to be fine.
However no fuel pressure!!
He is having difficulty getting his diagnostic equipment connected to the pump to fully test it because of the pumps location on the enggine.
Does anyone know an easy way to test the pump without major surgery??

Looking forward to your help.

yes you put a presure tester on the pipes and check the presure of the fuel
off the top of my head without looking it up it should be around 300

Hi,
Thanks Bigboots,

The mechanic is saying he is having trouble getting access to the pipes at the back of the pump.

Any ideas?
